Acura just released a lone photo of its upcoming NSX supercar, announcing it will drive a lap at Mid-Ohio prior to the Indy 200 race.
The car will appear on August 4 and you will be able to watch it live at 3 p.m. EST on NBC. As with the old car, Acura is targeting Ferrari-level performance without the price tag. Acura hasn’t made an official announcement, but the car is expected to use a mid-mounted hybrid V6 engine to power the rear wheels, while individual electric motors will add torque to the front wheels for more power and unique all-wheel drive driving dynamics.
Don’t be surprised when the car is priced well into six-figure territory. “Affordable” compared to a Ferrari or Lamborghini is still several years’ wage in most households. But if you feel so inclined, the automaker expects to start selling the car in 2015.
